China Pulls Plug On Genetically Modified Rice and Corn

Justpin Re:Very wise indeed (152 comments)

Is it really paranoid? Consider Kraft and Unilever, they make pretty much everything under different brand names. They are hoovering up other brands and putting them under their labels.

Long-Wave Radar Can Take the Stealth From Stealth Technology

Justpin Re:The F35 is a joke: (275 comments)

It is in operation yes, in limited numbers. But they aren't making any more and as the costs escalate it seems they might as well make more F-22s than F35s. The the F-22 is tested and operational and mostly does what it was advertised to do. The F35 is still promises a lot of things, for the costs of the F35 you might have been able to replace on a 1:1 basis all the aging F-15s the USAF has.

Long-Wave Radar Can Take the Stealth From Stealth Technology

Justpin Re:The F35 is a joke: (275 comments)

The F35 is a government subsidy program for Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin were pretty much given a blank cheque to write for as much as they want. The irony is Lockheed Martin had a completed and viable aircraft the F-22 which could have been modified like the F-15 which grew over the years to become the F-15E

MIT Considers Whether Courses Are Outdated

Justpin It is already being done elsewhere (205 comments)

I remember going into Manchester University / MMU/ Salford. (MA courses) The course I was looking at had 2 out of 8 core modules the other 6(+2 if you wanted) were electives and depending on the combination that you chose your masters qualification would be named differently, it could change from MSc to MA or MEd.

Israeli Iron Dome firms 'infiltrated by Chinese hackers'

Justpin After service sales (1 comments)

Considering Iron Dome missiles were found on a cargo ship bound for China on the MS Thor Liberty in 2011, why is this news? China doesn't just have the schematics they have complete missile systems.

Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

Justpin Re:Breaking news (619 comments)

Sure, but similarly calling something capitalist doesn't mean it is capitalist either. The western world is not even remotely capitalist even though it pretends it is. I wouldn't call bail outs capitalist or subsidies like the F35 program capitalist.

Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

Justpin Re:Breaking news (619 comments)

IIRC Government spending as a % of GDP in East Germany never went past 35%, in the UK government spending as a % of GDP went well over 50% a few years ago, its 15% in China and we have the gall to call them commies.

Except free markets are like true communism a concept which cannot exist, what we call free markets are anything but, cartels are normal, bribes, I mean lobbying for preferential treatment is normal. Thats not a free market at all.

Justpin Re:Protip: (667 comments)

And what shred of humanity is that? if you look back through history most wars and interventions are fought for profits. Nothing else, dressing it up for humanitarian reasons does not change the fact that wars are fought for profits. Libya for example 'humanitarian action' 'i.e. regime change'

Sigh you do realise it is 32C at this latitude right? bodies rot, and there are wild animals in this part of the world. I bloody well saw wolves in the Urals not far from the roads. So they move the bodies, oh they are evil, they don't move the bodies bodies rot or get eaten or decay rather quickly (you ever seen how fast dead things rot?) oh they are so disrespectful not moving the bodies.

The UK government has been caught editing wikipedia many times, around 2008/9 when MPs were caught fiddling their expenses a large number of edits on wikipedia occurred to their crimes and disseminate false information. If the UK government does it..

What like Iran flight 655? where the US government obfuscated and lied about it for years making fake claims that it was heading right for them. Funny enough Regan called the shoot down of Korean flight a crime against humanity. 4 years later the USS Vincennes shoots down Iran flight 655 and it was a regrettable incident. Double standard much?

Fascist aggressive country who exactly are you talking about? NATO aggressively invaded a couple of Middle Eastern countries quite recently on a false pretext. We bombed several others as well and affected regime change for OUR PROFITS. While two wrongs don't make a right Pot Kettle black much?

What you mean the conspiracy about associating Saddam with 911 and invading under a false pretext of WMD, this of course did not happen. Oh wait it did! Similarly the chemical weapons attack in Syria which on later analysis was found to be fired from a rebel controlled area, this of course did not happen!

Giant Crater Appears In Northern Siberia

Justpin Re:Please dont toss a match in (122 comments)

How many times has that pistol been used? Also do you have a high speed camera for a dramatic slow motion shot of running away from the fireball, or a cool pair of sunglasses so you can walk away from the huge fireball? heh

Derweze they found large gas deposits, a crane collapsed on-site and caused a rush of natural gas to the surface. USSR scientists thought it was best to burn it to reduce the environmental impact. That was in 1971, it is still burning.
